Hey guys,
I am wondering how to compete in Premier league with my team. I won promotion pretty easy. I spent a lot of money during summer and I think that with squad like this i could fight for the mid table finish. The only thing is that it's not the first time for me to take championship to premier, but result is always the same: I GET FIRED. This time I would like to keep my job so the question is: What tactic to use? I don;t want you to send me tactic, I would rather get some tips.

My squad:
Granero instead LuaLua

That looks like a pretty good team you have there!

The only thing I would suggest is it looks like you are playing Counter style football, but you have an attacking line up. I would suggest maybe going to standard against teams that you're expected to win but maybe have a back - up tactic of 4-4-2 where you could play counter football.

It might sound odd as obviously when you get the ball you want to counter attack but at the same time you're supposed to be sitting back at times and then hit them on the bounce, if you're sitting back and you have four attack minded players it's a little difficult. I'd put two strikers at the top just so J-ROD has some help up there!

I think you right. My first prem game was against Newcastle. I was predicted win, but still went there with counter tactic. It was a disaster. I was crushed 4:0 without a chance of scoring. Then I went against Tottenham with standart witch was much better and it finished 3:2 after close battle, but few days later with same tactic I wasn't able to show my advantage against Sheff Utd and won LUCKLEY 1:0.

And about other striker: I don't have good one. In championship Insigne worked great with Jay and I decided to leave it that way.
How far in are you? Because if you are still in the period where you can loan, I definitely would try get someone in on loan! It doesn't have to be anybody prolific but atleast if you can get someone in it might be able to shape things up because what if Jay gets injured etc

Start of season, but my finances are very tide. However I would be able to get Macheda on loan as he is listed at the moment.
